Dams, Development and DownStream Communities

Dams, Development and DownStream Communities


The book brings together the results of wide ranging, multidisciplinary research that addresses all the key components and implications of dam re-operation. Starting with the perceptions and concerns of the downstream communities, the book presents four scenarios for re-operation, the implications of each scenario for power generation and people’s livelihoods, flow requirements for fisheries and biodiversity, as well as socio-economic implications. Finally, the studies explore also institutional issues for managing re-operation of the dams, as well as alternative approaches for restoring livelihoods of downstream communities.
